    Just seems an exceptionally long time for a project, could do a few houses in that time. If it was me I'd have ordered the windows before building work commenced, just to avoid a building site on my property for a quarter of a year.

    Many thanks to @Joski for hosting the meeting on Tuesday night.

    Without going into too much detail (we don’t want Mark Jackson from Geobuild to know our next moves) but we do now have a plan of action.

    There are a group of us who are committed to ensuring that Mark Jackson faces the consequences of his actions. We’ve done our homework and we’ve started the ball rolling.

    For too long he has been allowed to rip people off.

    However, we really need even more people to come forward to share their story. The more we can prove that he’s been doing this repeatedly then the better chance we have of seeing him in court.

    If you have been a victim or know someone who has then either send me a private message or contact

    A friend of mine phoned me last night to say he’s just taken a 60 year old man for £30k and left him in a right mess, he was actually in tears it’s time he was stopped from wrecking people’s lives

    I do wonder where all the cash goes. And how much of it HMRC knows about.

    At this point, the corporate veil has been pierced plenty of times over so he can’t hide behind an Ltd any more. A civil suit would take him to the cleaners.

    If this has happened again surely he must be deemed as doing something illegal? Wasn't there a case last year where a cowboy builder was jailed for doing something similar

    What happens to civil suits when someone is in prison?

    Hi, just wondering does any one have contact number now( july18 )for mark Jackson, as I need to speak to him, as he finally ( and very shoddily) completed a supposedly 4 week garage conversation ( which no surprise took over 3 months) as already things are not working correctly ie French windows warped.....the number I had, obviously he isn’t responding to and says it’s unobtainable, and not answering emails....I just need to know what window company he used, I just remember one of the guys was called “jase”.....any help would be appreciated..........why I didn’t see this site before I gave them the job god knows..

    Friendly reminder to rate them everywhere too. Rated People has 5/5 from 6 reviews. That needs fixing.

    There's a "Choice Windows" in Dudley with a "Jase"? Maybe he had to go that far out to find someone who would actually work for him.

    Can’t help you contact Mark, think he might have gone under, saw he was selling his van back in May. I have a email address for Jase though, he quoted on my windows (didn’t use him though) will send to you via DM.

    Digging this back up after I was reminded of it from an unrelated news article: how are things with those who were victims of Geo-Build? By now I would have thought he’s breached the corporate veil so much it looks like a sieve and going after him directly would be an option

    I don’t really know if he’s still working or running a business but it appears that Geobuild was dissolved this year.
    I’d be interested to know if he’s still around and working, possibly/probably under a different working name.
    Or perhaps he eventually got his comeuppance, I’d love to know.

    What’s incredibly shady is that every time he makes a company it’s a different Person entry on Companies House, so you can’t go into the People tab and view other appointments

    Where is this now anyway? He’s clearly breached the corporate veil with his behaviour so I would have thought a good solicitor would have snapped up the case fairly quickly
